Baylor in Italy
BII 2013: July 11 - August 14
Each summer the Classics Department takes a group of 15-25 students to Italy for an intensive on-site learning experience. Two courses anchor the program: Topography of Rome and Pompeii (CLA 3321), and the Archaeology of Sicily and S. Italy (CLA 4331). As we visit famed archaeological sites such as Rome, Ostia, Pompeii, Paestum, and Syracuse, these courses introduce the relevant historical and cultural background. In addition, we typically offer an upper-level Latin class, usually Epistles and Epigraphy or Roman Comedy (LAT 3311 and 3351, respectively). Come join us in Italy this summer!
